These tulip buttons are the most accurate replacements to date. The colour is the correct pale shade and has just the right amount of translucency - a perfect replication of original tip colour and material. Not swirly but slightly cloudy just like the originals. They have the correct mold marks and come slightly aged.
These are straightforward to fit. Remove existing buttons by gently heating the metal shaft with contact from a clean soldering iron until the old buttons pull off. If you are replacing genuine late fifties buttons then they will probably just crumble off with some gentle persuasion. Once the old buttons have been removed and the shafts cleaned of any residue, heat the shaft with a small blow torch (pencil torches excellent for this and very cheap to buy on eBay). When the shaft is hot the new button will push on. Just be careful not to overheat the shafts, and if you need to adjust the distance between the tips and the tuner casing repeat the process by holding the soldering iron to the shaft until it comes lose again, and repeat the process.
Available in SINGLE RING late fifties version and DOUBLE RING early sixties version. These are currently ONLY available from Vintage Haven and are very limited stock. Buy them now before they are all gone.
